Statistics concerns the analysis of a collection of data derived from the outcome of an experiment in order to extract from it meaningful information about the nature of the measurements.

- Descriptive Statistics:

  • How to organize a data sample in order to extract qualitative information about the performed experiment
  • Compute, from the data values, relevant statistical quantities to be used to analyze and summarize in a commensurable fashion the information that can be extracted from the data sample 

- Introduction to inferential Statistics:

  • Introduction to the probabilistic model of an esperiment and how to draw conclusion from the data analysis about the scientific hypothesis laying behind the experiment
  •  Introduction to parametric hypothesis tests - The Gaussian case.
